Blog Stats for 2010

Wordpress sent me an email the other day with all this info attached.  Its pretty interesting to see the numbers.  I’m planning more animation focused posts again soon, if there’s anything in particular you’d like to hear about leave a comment, it would really help me focus on what is most important to you guys.  Maybe you would like to read a post about lipsync?  or physical animation?  Or how to start a shot?  Or maybe you have questions about the industry?  Feel free to ask away.

Also, Red Fog reached its goal and will become a real life comic book!  Thanks to everyone who helped Chris and Mike get the chance to make their dream a reality.

Happy New Year!

Dave

    Hi!
    My name is Alex and I’m a junior Computer Animation major at Ringling College. I was reading your post and I would absolutely LOVE to read a blog post about lipsync in particular. Maybe about how you start out and the process you use. We’re in the process of modeling our characters before we start our lipsync project for the semester.

    Thanks for your time!
    Oh, and I love your posts on Cloudy. Just great 🙂

      Hi Alex, happy you found my blog and enjoy it. I wish I could do a post about how I start lipsync right now, but I’m working 10+ hours a day and I can’t find any free time. Trust your instructors and I’m happy to look at anything and give feedback during the animation process. Good luck!

      Dave
